Life Update

Something non-con related...
I've been working on a massive (to me. D:) amount of homework that I missed, and now I've ended up sick again. T-T It's just an occasional cough, blowing of the nose, and the roof of my mouth is sore. I hope I don't get what I got last time. >< That sucked monkey balls...

One more month of school until I get a break, and then I get to start up summer classes. x.x

.....I'm really craving saimin. T-T

Anime Conji - Day 1 (Friday)

Woke up to the sound of several attendees waiting in line by the reg table. So many people came to register on-site Friday morning, that we ran out of badges and paper to print them. A lot of people had to wait for multiple hours just to get a badge. I felt so horrible for them. Pre-reg = good idea, yes?

Not only were there several attendees already there, but one of the DJs I had asked to come down was waiting for me down at con-ops. >< Sorry for taking so long, Kyle!
The Meet-The-Guests event started a bit late, and Wendee Lee showed up in time for it. I got some really good mango sorbet, thanks to the hotel <3

Meanwhile, members of the Black Crystals started to show up at reg, most of the line was still waiting, and Hector was losing his head. But the con suite, workshops, and panels were underway and running smoothly.

After everyone had ice cream, the voice actors all went inside for their panel (15 minutes late, might I add), and Markiss, Vince, and I started prepping the Pavilion for the dance. So I had DJ Aura come to set up his laptop, 6:30 rolls around and by a miracle force, Amaya, Hatman, and Hatman's cameraman show up from LA area. Set up goes well, dance gets underway, and HECTOR comes through the doors and surprisingly dances. I had no words for it... x.x

We thought that the hotel didn't tell their other guests about the convention, because they were apparently getting complaints up the wazoo by this time. The hotel liaison from the Doubletree Club Brenda kept having to come over to the tent and telling us to turn it down. Finally, she put her foot down and we had to end it an hour early. Said by to the DJs, they left, and off to the Rum Party I go.

Hung out with a very friendly Tadao, Koko, Tom, Adriel, and JD along with some others who I can't remember at the moment. I went back to the con suite and decided not to sleep there due to the crowd of maids, found out that there was a staff/guest lounge (yay!) with food and water (holy hell, I'm there.), and crashed there for the night...

Anime Conji - Day 0 (Thursday)

Note: This is what I remember happening at the con. If there's anything that you find incorrect, tell me! D:

For me, the con started Thursday afternoon. I went and got lunch, and air pump (finally!) for my mattress, and got dropped off at the hotel to wait for Ryan, Di, and Lapis (chair, vice, and chibi-chair). In the meantime, I noticed that the hotel had already set up several tables outside by the pool and inside in the lobby. Once the chairs got there, we all went up to the con-suite, where I would be crashing for the entire con, dropped off our luggage, and settled down. It wasn't long before more staff started showing up, so we got started on organizing and printing more pre-reg badges.

People were supposed to pick up other people and their crap, so I ended up going with Erron (security) to pick up Greg (con-suite) and all his food/drinks. As soon as we got back we cracked open a case of Mountain Dew and started up on the badges again. Chaz ended up coming by the con-suite for a little while, and I got my picture taken while putting names on badges. :3

Ryan was gracious enough to buy us all delicious midnight Mexican food at 1 am (thank you Ryan! <3) and we went to go hang out in the dealer's hall with Barrie & Hector while we ate. Everyone else crashed at 3, but Hector managed to reel me into helping him set up the tables in the lobby for about an hour. Went to bed at around 5 am with 5 cans of soda and 2/3 of a California burrito in my system on my air mattress.

Back to the Real World

Well, I'm finally back from the con. I think... Sorry I haven't updated in well over a month! I've been busy with the con coming up, school, and other hobbies that take priority. It's been hell for me to recover from all that happened the weekend before last. I think I got a total of 8 hours of sleep that entire weekend. I'll be updating on each of the days starting with Thursday. :]
Meanwhile, I'm not being very smart and pulling an all-nighter to get my homework done. D:
